Florence was born on October 7, 1925, to Anton and Pauline (nee Roth) Honish in Bruno. They lived in the Bruno area until around 1932 when they traveled to Goodsoil, SK, and took up a homestead. Florence attended Waterhen School and Goodsoil School until Grade 7. When she was about 15, she worked outside the home on a number of farms, where she milked cows, cooked, cleaned, washed clothes by hand, tended children, worked in the garden, and did other household duties. Florence married Anton “Tony” Weiman on June 3, 1947. They lived on John Sr. and Annie (nee Meier) Weiman’s homestead for seven years. Then, with their three young boys, Tony and Florence loaded the hayrack with their possessions and drove the horses about two miles northwest to start their own farm. The family cleared bush and established a farmyard, which Florence, Tony, and their seven children, Larry, Ken, Harold, Helen, Eileen, Sharon, and Jane called home. For many decades, milking cows and getting cream cheques allowed Florence to buy the family’s groceries and a few other neces- sities. During her life, Florence enjoyed playing cards, making quilts, and visiting with friends. She was a good sewer and seemed to be able to do magic with her paddle sew- ing machine. As well, Florence was a great cook; no one left her kitchen hungry. She always maintained a big garden and preserved many kinds of foods. Florence loved music and spent many evenings listening to the radio. She was an extremely kind, car- ing woman who gave selflessly to others, always putting their interests above her own.
